The Automotive Parts Services Group team made the following statement, “Each year our members vote for the vendors who are leaders in different categories. The vendors selected provide outstanding value and support and are typically companies that members value as partners. The Outstanding Vendor Of The Year is a company that members view as extremely important and dedicated to their success. This honor is reserved for companies who consistently perform at high levels in most areas and are viewed as partners who can be counted on when challenges arise. And it works both ways. This year’s winner is APC Automotive Technologies. This important supplier has maintained unwavering support and commitment. Their team continues to be focused on our member’s success and we have continued to have outstanding growth together. Their dedication to our membership along with the strong relationships that exist provide the foundation required to be the Outstanding Vendor Of The Year.”
